dollars and the rubbermaid fresh works, also 20 dollars.they were filled with raspberries, strawberries, baby leafy greens, and head lettuce. testers also stored samples in their original clamshell containers. they were left in a refrigerator and checked regularly. the greens in the oxo good grips held up well. and the strawberries in the rubbermaid looked better than the others. but is it worth buying special containers? "overall, we found that none of the containers ke much fresher than the original clamshell." however, consumer reports says the refrigerator itself can make a difference. produce thats stored in a dual- evaporative refrigerator - one that chills the freezer and refrigerator sections separately - lasts longer. but any refrigerator can do a better job if you store foods in the right place. "the best move is to store fruits and vegetables in low and high humidity bins in the refrigerator when you bring them home." for
high-humidity drawer. the low-humidity drawer is best for most fruits. and some produce should never go into the refrigerator. tomatoes do best stem side down on the counter. keep potatoes and onions separate, because gases from the onions will cause the potatoes to sprout. bread will last longer if you keep it in the freezer, not the refrigerator. take out what you need as you go along. it just takes a few minutes to thaw. i'm jenna sachs - contact 6. remember -- if you have a consumer issue or an investiga on your screen or file a complaint on the contact 6 page at fox 6 now dot com. tom wachs is on the weather deck. thanks to the high pressure we've had in place the past couple of days, we'll stay mostly clear and quiet tonight. lows will be warm and
